Happy St. Patrick's Day!
It was pouring today! Although that's not too much different than the rest of the week because we had rain six out of seven days. But on this day it rained extra hard. I tried to get a picture of the puddle with the water splashing but in my haste not to get soaked and to keep my camera dry this is what I ended up with.
Due to all the rain, baseball/softball opening day was re-scheduled (and unfortunately we will be out of town the weekend it has been traded to). This is one of the Pee Wee fields underwater. And with all the rain we are supposed to get all next week it could look a lot worse. Our only reason for veturing out at all was to pick up this:
Elisha got his first name on his hat and his last name on his shirt. He's so excited because this is the first year they have been offered this and it made it extra special for him. Bethany declined to have hers done, so please don't think I am playin' favorites!
Well, one year officially down! And now it's time to head to Sara's to see what everyone
else's weather has been like this week else has been up to this week. (And as I sit here and type this I am listening, again, to the wind whipping around and the rain beating down on my house. Makes me want to sing, It's raining, it's pouring...)

Mary's fourth grade homework assignment was to make sentences using the words in her spelling list, along with the definition. Coming across the word "frugal" in the list, she asked her father what it meant. He explained that being frugal meant you saved something.
Her paper read:
Frugal: to save
Sentence: Maid Marion fell into a pit when she went walking in the woods so she yelled for someone to come get her out. She yelled "Frugal me, Frugal me!"

Since Yohn and I are never able to help at field prep day for Elisha and Bethany's baseball/softball league and since it is mandatory, we volunteered to do some work tonight. The kids both had a scrimmage game so we were there and available. I raked up several piles of these leaves totalling 4 1/2 bags worth and Yohn filled the other half with trash from around the complex. See that large bag in the background, that's one of ours. Nobody can accuse us of not doing our share :) Boy were my very under-used muscles tired.
Yohn finally was able to get hats with the kids' teams on them. They have been repeatedly asking when he was gonna do it and finally they allowed us to purchase them with the league because all the kids were finished getting them for their uniforms. We waited because they are way cheaper to buy them through the league than at the store.
Whew! A busy, busy week we had with a practice almost every day. The kids are lovin' it though! And I have almost done an entire year of the 365! Only three more days to go! Thanks Sara for hosting the fun!

His whole class jumped in for a picture too!
Later that night we celebrated with Grandma Yvonne, who happens to share a birthday with him.
We ate out a Mimi's and had a great time, even though they crammed us all into one booth.
Then on Saturday it was off to Sky High for some fun with family and friends.
Trampolines everywhere make for some great bouncing fun!
But bad lighting and constant movement make for some not so great photos.
